Percona announces the release of Percona Monitoring and Management 1.5.0 on November 28, 2017.
This release focuses on the following features:
- Enhanced support for MySQL on Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora – Dedicated Amazon Aurora dashboard offers maximum visibility into key database characteristics, eliminating the need for additional monitoring nodes. We renamed Amazon RDS OS Metrics to Amazon RDS / Aurora MySQL Metrics
- Simpler configuration – Percona Monitoring and Management now offers easier configuration of key Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora settings via a web interface
- One-click data collection – One button retrieves vital information on server performance to assist with troubleshooting
- Improved interface – A simple, consistent user interface makes it faster and more fluid to switch between Query Analytics and Metrics Monitor
Highlights from our new Amazon RDS / Aurora MySQL Metrics dashboard:
Shared elements for Amazon Aurora MySQL and RDS MySQL
Amazon Aurora MySQL unique elements
Amazon RDS for MySQL unique elements
We’ve integrated Query Analytics into Metrics Monitor, and it appears as a separate dashboard known as PMM Query Analytics.
We have upgraded Grafana and Prometheus in this release. PMM now includes Grafana 4.6.1. One of the most prominent features that the upgraded Grafana offers is the support of annotations. You can mark a point or select a region in a graph and give it a meaningful description. For more information, see the release highlights.
Prometheus version 1.8.2, shipped with this release, offers a number of bug fixes. For more information, see the Prometheus change log.
